Removing Microsoft application OneNote on Mac isn’t as easy as you might think. If you just drag and drop the program icon to the Trash, its cache files remain on your hard drive and take up space. But don’t worry! We are going to show you two ways of uninstalling OneNote completely.
Uninstall Microsoft OneNote Tool Manually
- Quit OneNote and move it to Trash.
- Go to the folder ~Library → Containers.
- Remove from there all subfolders and files with the names that start with com.microsoft.onenote
*Read in our previous article How to open Library folder.
- Now all support files are in the Trash. Remember, once you empty the Trash any files of OneNote are not recoverable.
Remove OneNote with App Cleaner & Uninstaller
The second way to disable OneNote is much easier and faster. You can uninstall OneNote or any other software on Mac in one click with a free tool App Cleaner & Uninstaller.
- Download App Cleaner from the App Store and launch it.
- From the list of scanned apps select OneNote and click Remove.
App Cleaner & Uninstaller is a removal software to delete any application on Mac completely, disable extensions and get rid of the remains of old apps that have been deleted before by being moved to the Trash.
App Cleaner is free to clear service files and remains. To completely uninstall apps all at once will require upgrading to the Pro version. However, you can follow these steps to remove OneNote with the help of the program:
- First scan the applications with App Cleaner and remove all the OneNote service files.
- Then go to the Finder and remove the executable files manually with a context menu.
